Lake Country School is an urban-based Montessori community whose purpose is to help children prepare themselves for life.
We seek to mirror and embrace the rich diversity of the city.
We foster independence, critical thinking, respect and responsibility to self, to others and to the earth.
We believe that children learn by doing and are lovers of purposeful work, spontaneously chosen and carried out with profound joy.
Montessori education attends to the total development of the child - social, emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual.
